fascinating eh?

but help vs destroy doesnt pan out.
its a gradient scale not a dichotomy.
and some feel that the best way to help is to kill everyone.
if you ask Bush if he wants to help people he would say that is exactly what he is doing...and would probably believe it too!
and that is how it is possible that Nixon could say something so positive and humanitarian while devaluating currency, waging war and all the other things he did during his presidency to "help" people.
anyway... back to the subject at hand...
anyone have a truly positive quote with which to inspire the rest of us towards great things?

GARKO,

Not sure I follow your logic . . . but I agree that help/destroy is not a dichotomy. (which, according to my dictionary, is "Being twofold; a classification into two opposed parts or subclasses").

That being the case, and for what it's worth, then I would offer

help/hinder
and
help/hurt

as dichotomies.

Politics aside, I don't think it's any more complicated than Nixon simply offering his opinion in answer to the question posed by Life Magazine. And I think he hit the nail on the head . . . or at least ONE of the nails!

Have a good one!

---- Hugh
